Tramaglini, 42, the superintendent of Kenilworth Public Schools, was arrested Thursday for defecating at a nearby district's high school's track and football field.
The Holmdel Township Police Department said students and staff at Holmdel High School began complaining about finding human feces on or near the field on a daily basis.
So, the school resource officer and school staff began monitoring the area.
Police said they identified the suspect as Tramaglini, who has now been charged with lewdness, littering, and defecating in public.
Tramaglini has taken a paid leave of absence from his $147,504 a year job in Kenilworth.
"Earlier today, we learned of municipal court charges facing our current superintendent of schools in Holmdel, NJ. Given the nature of those charges, he asked for and was granted a paid leave of absence. (Leaves can only be without pay in the face of indictments or tenure charges, as a matter of state law.)
"Effective immediately, Brian Luciani, our Director of Academics, will assume the responsibilities of the office of superintendent of schools. The Board of Education wants to assure faculty and staff, students and parents, that the district will continue its responsibilities without interruption. Every day, and especially during challenging times, we are fortunate to have veteran administrators and other dedicated professionals on whom we can rely.
"We will continue to keep the community informed," the Kenilworth Board of Education said in a statement.
